This image was taken at Great Langdale, the view being 'The Band' in the lake district, the path up to Bow Fell (and an amazing view!). I took this image at 6am after a huge rain storm that night.

Used a ND8 filter and grad for sky. The image is a HDR of three images, which has had some burning applied, along with colour correction and sharpening.

Paul congrats on a great score. I can feel the dampness. Must have been extremely soggy!

So glad you entered one of these shots Paul, they really are great! Excellent composition and the mist/clouds give this quite an eerie feel :-)

8 - Beautiful scene and capture and 'feel'. My eyes just want to see a little more of what is on the right, not just for added compositional balance, but that tree, especially, is an excellent element.

I love the dominant gray theme, very nice.

Very atmospheric - perfectly encapsulates the lake District that I know!

Not going to vote as I know this is yours Paul. (Saw it on Facebook) :) Seems to be a somewhat typical view up in the Lakes this summer! My parents have been there for 2 weeks and have hardly had a dry day.

Nice composition. Ireland? However, the colors (the greens) look muted. If the greens were richer, I think the image would stand out more and get more points. Just MHO.
